Working Group - Overview

GLOBE Working Groups

Large group of GLOBE members, including students and teachers.
 

In addition to working with scientists, educators and country partners around the world, GLOBE also collaborates with local community members to develop and implement GLOBE's mission. These teams, or Working Groups, provide valuable feedback on The GLOBE Program and present potential opportunities for increasing the program's global impact. They also serve as an important link between the program and GLOBE communities at large.

Each of our five Working Groups is composed of up to seven regional members. If there is a topic users think should be discussed by a Working Group and brought forward to the management of The GLOBE Program, they can contact a Working Group representative for that region. GLOBE strives to ensure that each of the six GLOBE regions maintain representation in the Working Groups, so if a region does not have a current active member, please contact the Working Group chair.
 

10th Anniversary Working Group Report

The GLOBE Working Groups met in conjunction with the 2023 GLOBE Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado, for the 10th anniversary of the Working Groups with a facilitator from the Trebuchet Group.
